Are two lymph nodes each one of them is 1 CM in size, matted, movable a cause for concern?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

A recent CT w+w/o contrast show right inguinal lymph nodes one 2.6x1.9 and less pronounced left inguinal lymph nodes though largest 1.4 cm ?.

Size alone: is not a reliable indicator of whether or not a lymph node is pathologic. The overall shape/morphology is also important. Lymph nodes of that size in the inguinal areas, if they have normal morphology, may be nothing to worry about. Talk to your doc about what the results mean in your particular case. ...Read more

Needs follow up: Asymptomatic but persistent neck nodes can be due to chronic sinus or nasal issues, allergies, lymphadenopathy disorders such as castlemans disease, etc. And also sometimes due to lymphomas which are low grade in nature.

Ultrasound finds benign axillary lymph nodes with intact hilum bilateraly,largest 1.3cm on right 0.8 cm on left ,one 5mm fibroidenoma in both breasts.

Not exactly sure: What the question is, but the axillary lymph nodes sound like they are normal. Ultrasound cannot specifically diagnose a fibroadenoma, but probably benign nodules that likely are fibroadenomas are usually followed up at 6 month intervals for 2 or 3 years to assess stability. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes in neck, that are all soft.. Moveable and under 1cm except one is 1.5 cm. Temps of 99.2 frequently and chills? Been for 3 years!

Go to see MD: You should go to see your doctor and get yourself checked. There are different things like autoimmune disorder, infection, chronic inflammation or malignancy - at your age- hodgkin's lymphoma, testicular cancer are things to be ruled out. However since you mentioned that it has been there for 3 years -then hodgkin's , leukemia /ca would be less likely-as the problem. Go to see your doc for eval. ...Read more

Soft movable lymph nodes in neck less than 1 cm

If they don't change in size or the number is that mean they are safe
Thank you :)?

Very possibly...: but I think you should get an expert opinion. I would advise you have your physician examine them and confirm your assessment that these lymph nodes are benign. Then you can agree together on whether it is safe for you to self-monitor them, or if she/he wants you to return for a recheck just to make sure all remains stable/benign. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Lymph nodes in kids: Yes. It is perfectly normal for children to have multiple lymph nodes up to 1.5-2 cm diameter from ages 1 to 21, usually in the neck on either side along a chain of lymph glands stretching from behind the ear all the way down to the clavicles. They are caused by the repeated (but normal) colds, sore throats, and other viral infections that children get. No need to worry. ...Read more

Lymph node swelling: Lymph nodes are part of your body's natural defense against both infections and foreign objects.
